The Sensitive Ones by Heather Nardi
Having a child who is an empath can be overwhelming at times. Not so much because of how sensitive they are but because your natural sense of being protective is heightened. At least that’s how it is for me. I find myself being very overprotective of my son because he doesn’t just feel for someone, he feels along with someone.
That’s why I found The Sensitive Ones: Healing and Understanding Your Child’s Mental Health so useful. I finally felt like there was someone who understood exactly how I feel and what I go through. It has also helped me better help my son.
When Empath Mama, author, speaker, and coach Heather Nardi discovered that she and her daughter are both sensitive empaths or sensitive ones, everything started to make sense. Upon further research, she realized that empaths and highly sensitive people (HSP) are often seen as problematic—quiet, too sensitive, and too emotional. Heather is now a fierce advocate for other families shifting the story from “disorder” to “trait.” Her memoir, The Sensitive Ones: Healing and Understanding Your Child’s Mental Health introduces HSP characteristics and offers advice for parenting a sensitive child, like coping skills, how to be an advocate, holistic health pathways, and how understanding and acceptance can heal the past and present.
About the Book
The Sensitive Ones is a touching memoir of a mother’s quest to uncover the cause of her daughter’s mental illness. When Heather discovered that she and her daughter are both sensitive ones (a trait that causes them to be more sensitive to subtle stimuli, more responsive to deep emotions, and more perceptive to the needs of others) everything started to make sense. Upon further research, she realized that empaths and highly sensitive people are often seen as different- quiet, too sensitive, and too emotional. The Sensitive Ones is a story about how she learned to listen to her intuition and accept herself and her daughter as they are without needing to fix anything.
Heather writes profoundly to an awakening world by being vulnerable and honest while sharing her journey. This book covers the hardest times and the most intense fears and negative experiences that life can deliver. It is a touching account of love and fear, lightness and darkness, and how we deal with our own sensitivities in relation to how the world treats us.
Heather wrote this book to be a guide for other families struggling to understand themselves and create a better world for all sensitive ones.
You can find The Sensitive Ones: Healing and Understanding Your Child’s Mental Health on Amazon and your favorite bookseller.
